    I have not seen POA collartabs for sale in shops/dealers lately, i have bought my humble items from private collectors, so then prices are often different. But i am very sure there are someone on this forum who can help you in placing a value on your new treasures.

    Edit: forgot detail
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    The cap badge is for a Ukrainian Roland Battalion member. These cap badges until just recently used to be Extremely Rare-between Bob Coleman and myself, in over 40 years, we both had seen only one of these badges. Apparently, there has recently been discovered either a Box of these badges or else a hoard somewhere has been uncovered. ....
    Never too late for revision and addenda.
    The cap badge is n o t for Ukrainian Roland Btn. whose members donned Czech garb with an "Im Dienst der Deutschen Wehrmacht" armlet. Being an Abwehr sub-unit of under cover Ukrainians and given the short existence of the formation, the introduction of a specific cockade is unlikely.You may have been misled by the fact that after the disbandment of the Roland Btn. its members joined a SchuMa Btn. (201) and the Ukrainian SchuMa did use this badge to a certain extent. Conversely, this cockade is definitely attributed to what the German called Ukrainian Polizei, which was raised in the District "Galicia" of the General Gouvernement . It was also used by SchuMa, UPA , Bunchuzhny and even in the 14th WSS division. An oval variation existed as well and it was prescribed for the UNA.
    Iím not aware of this 2013 hoard, but I have seen many since the early 1980sí Ö they have been rather common on this side of the Atlantic and havenít impressed too much . I have got half a dozen of them unsold for years. By no means rare.
